Being on the road, I listen to a lot of podcasts to keep my mind busy and not fall asleep. In the past, I only had two or three, but recently I listened to all of them and came across a lot more interesting ones. Fitting in with my interests, they are more business, pickup, etc. related.
http://www.buddhistgeeks.com/They interview a lot of interesting people including scientists, researchers, spiritual teachers, and what not. None of the New Age type bullshit, but you probably need at least a remote interest in Buddhism, mindfulness, or meditation to care. Anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hr, usually longer on the recent ones
http://www.daygame.com/podcast/UK guys that just talk about day game. I think there's a lot of fluff, but it does get me socially motivated to meet new people which is good when I'm visiting a new city where I know no one. They have an emphasis on honest, direct game which I like. Around a hour each.
http://radiolab.org/I've listened to every single one of their episodes. Usually they choose a broad topic or questions like Bad Guys or Colors or Guts and try to find the answer and tell a lot of antecdotes along the way. You will be entertained. And I've been unknowingly retelling the stories because they're so good. About a hour.
http://ecorner.stanford.edu/podcasts.htmlI just found this recently and only listened to two of them but boy were they really really good. Stanford Univ's Entrepeneur Center interviewing CEOs and entrepeneurs with Q&A at the end
My favorites are This American Life, The Moth (true stories told live on stage), The Joe Rogan Experience, Radio Lab, Girl on Guy W/ Aisha Tyler, The Adam Carolla Show and Smart Passive Income.
Koreans Gone Bad is the best one I've listened to. David Choe is a very eccentric character and all the guests have great stories. FWIW I'm not even that interested in Korea, but it's awesome.
I second The Joe Rogan Podcast and Smart Passive Income, and I'll add in Pick Up Podcast (one of the best pick up knowledge sources I've ever had) and Foolish Adventure (great entrepreneur podcast)

Wow, that was a really busy week. I'm not used to being busy at all - back in the day I had all the free time I could possibly imagine. Maybe it's about time to revisit polyphasic sleep? Here are some things that made me busy :
Work, of course. I've been waiting for weeks for a company to send us a new computer for our data center that lets me do fancy things. Last week it seemed like every day was going to be the day that it would be ready, so I would just wait all day for it to be set up. Then there would be some problem, and the process would repeat itself the next day. Finally this week it got all set up, so now I have more to do than I have time for. Yes! I love having things to do. It just so happens that this particular task is really fun too.
My car broke AGAIN. I have a 1994 S600, which is known to be one of the hardest (read : most expensive) cars to maintain. The reason is that it's a V12. Since it's basically two V6 engines stuck together, it also has two of a lot of components. Twice as many things to be broken. It also has a hydraulic suspension, which is what broke on mine. Of course this time I didn't take the car to the dealership.
Sit down before you read this.
We've got to talk.
Look. This is going to piss you off. This is going to look like I'm causing problems.
I'm not causing problems. I'm just pointing out where problems already exist.
